Martin Kaymer holes out for eagle during the opening round of the PGA Championship

There are few quieter major champions than Martin Kaymer. The winner three years ago in that strange Bunker Gate PGA Championship, Kaymer was once No. 1 in the world before falling off the map, only to return to grace with that winning putt at the Ryder Cup last year.

On Thursday at Oak Hill, Kaymer might have just hit the shot of the day. Already 1-under at the time, Kaymer stood over his third shot on the par-5 13th, made a good swing and watch as his ball backed up, did a 360-degree lap around the hole before dropping for the eagle.

It moved Kaymer to 3-under for the championship and very much in contention to snag a second Wanamaker Trophy.
